Alternative Images, corporate photographers in London were asked to record the workshop event held in London on 11th Septmber by UKHO organised by CT-Live event management. This workshop was explaining the importance of regular updates and best procedure practice for ship navigation systems. At the event there was time to ask the professionals after a light lunch on the systems they offer. The main presenter for the morning was Captain Paul Hailwood who spoke in two one hour sessions on the ECDIS system.
The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office is committed to the safe and efficient adoption of ECDIS in accordance with SOLAS requirements. It is apparent the shipping industry requires clear unambiguous guidance for the transition from traditional to digital navigation. The UKHO will be providing a workshop to provide guidance for the development of ECDIS operating procedures into the on board safety management system as required by international regulations and the International Safety Management (ISM) code. The workshop will benefit any person involved with the shipping industry including, managers, owners, ship personnel, regulators and auditors.
